Did I miss the explanation for the SpaceX YT live feed quality? Was only getting 720p as the highest, and they weren't using the usual graphics for the inflight info and footage.

Exactly the same on NASA side though. Maybe it was actually something they use together or something.

Update: They have fixed the thermal control system issue, but are now experiencing issues on three of the four propellant heaters on one of the RCS blocks. They need a minimum of two functioning while docked or else they violate a flight rule relating to redundancy. If they can't fix this, they might be coming home early.

Did they strip down out of the fancy white custom pressure suits?  Is this b/c of heat?

No, it's standard procedure - because they're going to be floating in that spaceship for 27 hours, and these are more comfortable clothes for the coast. Temperature in the capsule is 23 degrees C.
